More Hits Of The 50s & 60s

LP (Item 537588) Verve, 1963 — Condition: Very Good+

Basie hits the hits of the 50s and early 60s – working here with some tight Billy Byers arrangements that really help transform the tunes! The groove is upbeat, bright, and brilliantly soulful – that punctuated Basie groove first formed when Neal Hefti was with the group, still carried off here wonderfully by a lineup that includes Frank Wess and Frank Foster on saxes, Snooky Young and Al Aarons on trumpets, Benny Powell and Henry Coker on trombones, and Freddie Green on guitar. Titles include "The Second Time Around", "Hey Jealous Lover", "All Of Me", "This Love Of Mine", "Saturday Night", "Come Fly With Me", and "South Of The Border" – almost a Sinatra album in spirit, given the choice of tunes like these!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

One of THE seminal Basie albums of all time – and a masterful pairing between the Count and arranger Neal Hefti!

Hall Of Fame
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Excellent work from that wonderful 50s moment when Count Basie was really reinventing his band – stripping things down, getting nice and lean, and putting in this soulful kick to the rhythms that really helped modernize the groove!

A really great pairing – and a rare non-Brubeck Paul Desmond session from the 50s!

Verve, 1961. Near Mint-
The sound of the trio is loud and clear on this set – captured before a very appreciative crowd at the London House in Chicago, and featuring Peterson at his inventive best!

Verve, Early 50s. Sealed
We can't decide whether we like Bird better in the small seminal bop quintets he led, or blowing fiery solos over larger arrangements buoyed by strings. Fortunately these sets, compiled from 10" LPs bring together some of both, though as you might guess from the title, they do lean heavily ... LP, Vinyl record album
